I have always been an advocate for Rome-Floyd County. It is one of the greatest places to live and work in the entire U.S.!
There are few REALTORS today who are as familiar with Rome, its community, businesses and neighborhoods as Lloyd Griffin. He joined Toles, Temple & Wright, Inc. in fall 2015, bringing with him more than six decades of life and experience as a Roman. As a full-time sales associate, he offers a range of expertise that includes working with clients in the buying and selling of warehouses, commercial buildings and office buildings, as well as residential properties.
Before entering real estate, Lloyd owned and operated several local businesses, including Bagby Transfer Company, Summit Distributing Company (Coors), and Stor-It Mini-Warehouses. His extensive background in business, finance and community involvement has given him a wide array of relevant experience inside and outside of the real estate sector.
Lloyd initially moved to Rome from Carrollton when he was in the sixth grade. His father owned and ran Rome Men’s Shop, a local haberdashery on Broad Street. Lloyd attended Rome High School and West Rome High School, playing on the latter’s first football team, before graduating from Darlington School.
Lloyd holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in business administration from Auburn University, where he ran track and was initiated as a member of Omicron Delta Kappa by the National Leadership Honor Society. He later took graduate courses at what is now known as the J. Mack Robinson College of Business at Georgia State University. After college, Lloyd proudly served in the U.S. Air Force, and later in the Georgia Air National Guard.
His professional experience includes more than a decade with Citizens & Southern (C&S) National Bank in Atlanta. Life took him and his family back to Rome when he decided he wanted to raise his kids in a smaller town so they could experience the same sense of community that Lloyd remembered from his youth. Lloyd still believes and knows that when all factors are considered, Rome is one of the best places to live and work, and he remains especially enthusiastic about the community.
In his spare time, he enjoys hiking, fishing, reading and traveling. Lloyd and his wife, Donna, have a blended family of six grown children and 13 grandchildren. They reside in the Horseleg Creek area of Rome.
